As an early adopter of 3D building information modeling in Tulsa, McIntosh Corporation has worked on diverse projects, including medical centers, educational institutions, and shopping centers. Our team has collaborated with engineering consultants to create permit/contract documents, work on schematic level drawings, and much more to fulfill our clients' project requirements. McIntosh Corporation wants to ensure quality work with each construction project we are involved in. With BIM/CAD, we can deliver the best possible results for mechanical system projects.
What Is BIM/CAD?
Building Information Modeling (BIM) and Computer Aided Drafting (CAD) have allowed McIntosh Corporation to incorporate plumbing systems, HVAC systems, ductwork, and process piping for nearly three decades. BIM software allows our team to create a 2D or 3D model to enable contractors or installers to visualize each project and create vital construction documents. This helps ensure the build-design process is as efficient and straightforward as possible to improve accuracy and save money for our clients.
Through BIM services, clients, building owners, contractors, and architects can all work together to ensure the best outcome possible and deliver an expert mechanical construction system – no matter what the scope of the project may be. Without BIM, these mechanical construction projects will likely not meet a client's satisfaction and may slow down installation times.
CAD services also help create precise 3D models for mechanical projects in conjunction with BIM services. These models, in turn, help minimize RFIs, decrease potential project delays and pinpoint problem areas before construction even begins. A great CAD model can help professionals verify that the mechanical systems that are being installed will be tailor-fit for your building.
Our team leverages design/build to provide advanced services, including:
Design Review and Project Cost Optimization
McIntosh Corporation's Tulsa BIM/CAD engineers can review any initial design work completed to encourage better collaboration while also advising changes that might be necessary. Our BIM process ensures that the most cost-effective approach is taken for all essential mechanical systems while still focusing on quality.
Coordination and Construction Reviews
By scrutinizing existing or new BIM files, McIntosh Corporation's engineers can ensure that all needed mechanical systems are feasible within the confines of the building's structure. Our team can also utilize 3D collision-monitoring software to identify and resolve potential conflicts throughout the coordination process.
Underground Systems Reviews
McIntosh Corporation uses BIM to effectively plan underground systems, including plumbing piping and any above-ground connection points. By ensuring accurate building information is always used, new system installations are guaranteed proper alignment, and existing systems can be rerouted to be more efficient.

January 28, 2022 Building Information Modeling (BIM) is the basis for digital transformation in the architecture, engineering, and construction (AEC) industry. Though BIM is required for most extensive projects in the AEC industry, it does not, however, come equipped with a manual. In fact, this rather complex conception can give rise to questions and misconceptions.…Read More
